Album Review

Twelve of the fifteen selections recorded at tenor saxophonist Paul Quinichette's first sessions as a leader were reissued on this late-'70s Trip LP. Quinichette, a near-perfect soundalike of Lester Young in the 1950s, was with Count Basie's new orchestra at the time. Six selections find the tenor joined by Basie himself (on piano and organ) along with such Basie-ites as trumpeter Buck Clayton, trombonist Dickie Wells, guitarist Freddie Green, bassist Walter Page and drummer Gus Johnson. The other selections include two on which Quinichette is joined by trumpeter Joe Newman, trombonist Henry Coker and altoist Marshall Royal and four on which his five-piece rhythm section includes pianist Kenny Drew and organist Bill Doggett. With the exception of "I'll Always Be in Love With You," all of the songs are fairly basic and swinging Quinichette originals.
